Smart Inventory Control For Veterinary Hospital

A large veterinary hospital in Texas, with three locations in Houston and one in San Antonio, was looking for an inventory savior to help monitor their fluctuating inventory levels. The hospital spends time providing care for animals in emergency situations, therefore, lacked the time to properly check in and out used items. With this dilemma, the clinic managers reached out to EMS Barcode to figure out a fitting inventory-solution, to ensure enough equipment was available and the clinic stock levels are within range.

Inventory Control Assessment

Currently, the Texas-based animal provider loads all of its inventory counts onto a Google spreadsheet. They share access with their sister clinics, so all facility locations could update from this central server. Despite a central base, the clinic routinely relied on human memory for equipment leaving, and wasted time on routine counts to correct human errors. Lastly, in emergency situations, the clinics frequently handed off equipment, and without knowing, forgot to report the movements to their Google sheet.

Practicing Better Inventory Control

Veterinary Hospital gets smart and manages inventory stock levels.

Notifications

For the medical field it is common practice that medications change brands, so knowing which vendor or manufacturer is the most current is very important to hospitals. Addressing this concern, with Wasp Inventory Control, users are able to track multiple vendors for various items, and set a new default provider for the medications if prescription brands changed. Also, with the Date Code tracking field, the clinic workers could automate the monitoring of expiration dates on any medications.

Managing check-ins and outs

A main concern for the clinics rested with their fluctuating stock levels.

The mobile computer scanner allows for easy scanning of inventory, so no time went wasted getting items out of the storage closet, and simultaneously gave them accurate inventory counts. This was a main dilemma for them, as they needed to have supplies on-hand when an animal emergency came their way.

Audits

The audit feature also makes the cycle counts a breeze. Wasp Inventory Control has check-in and check-out enabled, so reporting against how many items were loaned out to different hospitals is an easy report to make, and use.

Down the Road: Inventory Management
